Three years ago an Overseer of Poor was chosen as more or 
less of an emergency measure. It is my opinion that the relief 
question has ceased to be an emergency. It has not ceased to be a 
problem. Therefor I recommend that all welfare business in 
Greenville be placed in the hands of the Selectmen, with the 
Chairman designated as Overseer of Poor. With this arrange- 
ment the routine work can be easily taken care of resulting in 
a saving to the town. It should also prevent any exploitation of 
the office of Overseer, which is liable to result if the position is 
open to election each year. We must prevent the welfare busi- 
ness from becoming a political football. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. WiLLARD BUTTRICK, 

Overseer of the Poor.

REPORT OF FIREWARDS 



The Department responded to seven signal alarms during 
the year, of these the most disastrous was the burning of the 
house on the Pihljaviita farm May 3rd. By hard work the barn 
was saved. The estimated loss was $3,000. 

The fire Dec. 31st at the Pajanen home was confined to the 
wooden casing of the chimney with a damage of about $100. 

One of the fires was in Mr. Chouinard's tar cooking kettle on 
the Fitchburg road. The damage was small. Other alarms were 
for brush and chimney fires. 

The fire line on River street was completed by the installa- 
tion of one hydrant. 

It was necessary to purchsae a new hydrant to replace a 48- 
year-old one near the residence of Mr. McCuddy and the last 
hydrant on Dunster Ave., required a new base. 

The building situated on land of J. C. Taft and formerly 
used for firemen's meetings not being used for that purpose now, 
we recommend that it be sold. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Wm. H. Doonan 
John Rodier

ficers: Selectmen, Town Treasurer, Water Commissioners, Fire 
Wards, Cemetery Trustees, Library Trustees, Town Clerk, 
Municipal Court and Tax Collector for the year ending January

REPORT OF SCHOOL BOARD 



To the Citizens of Greenville: 

We herewith submit the following report: 

There are forty-four pupils in High School this year, ten of 
whom will graduate in June. We expect seventeen will graduate 
from the eighth grade this year, and all expect to attend High 
School. This will make fifty-one pupils in High School next 
year, and we have budgeted four thousand dollars for this item, 
an increase of one hundred dollars over last year. 

While we will graduate a class of nine from the public 
School, we expect only four or five to enter the first grade next 
fall. With this reduction in enrollment, we have provided for 
only two teachers in the budget, and we estimate that each teacher 
will have about twenty scholars. 

The school building is in very good repair, and we do not 
anticipate any large expenditures during the coming year.

REPORT OF 
SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

To the School Board and Citizens of Greenville: 

I respectfully submit my sixteenth annual report as Superin- 
tendent of Schools. 

Supervision 

In my report of last year, I stated that we were giving special 
attention to Primary Reading and discussed the first two of the 
five stages in learning to read; namely, (1) the preparatory stage 
in which the teacher builds upon the experiences the children 
have had in the home and community and the background of 
ideas and the conversational ability they possess and (2) the three 
phases of the second stage, pre-primer, primer and first reader. 
These two stages are normally completed in the first grade. This 
year we are extending this emphasis on reading through the sec- 
ond grade and attempting to take each child at the level of read- 
ing ability which he has attained, and carry him on at his own 
best rate of progress. 

The third stage in learning to read is a period of rapid 
growth in the fundamental habits of recognition of words and 
phrases and in the easy interpretation of meanings. This stage 
normally covers two years work,— that is, grades two and three. 
However, there are always found in the second grade some pupils 
who have not progressed farther than the first reader level, or 
even the primer level, at the beginning of the year; consequently 
any group of second grade children must be broken up into two 
or three sections corresponding to these levels of attainment. 

In both the first and second grades we now report in con- 
siderable detail the progress each child is making in reading, in 
order that the parent may have a more complete picture of the 
child's abilities and handicaps and be in a position to discuss 
special problems with the teacher and cooperate with her in 
overcoming difficulties. 

In grades above the second, the teachers are making special 
efforts to help pupils with their reading difficulties, first by de- 
termining so far as possible the cause of their handicaps and 
second by applying appropriate remedial measures through in- 

75 



dividual or group instruction and drill. Many of the factors that 
determine a child's success and rate of advancement in the pri- 
mary grade reading still affect his progress in the later grades. 
The factors which are most important are those related to gen- 
eral health and emotional status. 

Low general health is likely to retard progress in reading, 
prevent good memory, and even produce a dislike for reading 
because the effort required produces discomfort. Evidences of 
low general health, such as poor color, lack of energy, nervousness, 
restlessness, irritableness, getting tired easily, sagging posture, 
etc., must be remedied, if the child is to have a fair chance at 
learning, whether it be in the primary grades or at any later 
period in the child's school experience. Normal hearing and 
vision are also essential to success and we try to discover as 
early as possible any indication that a child does not hear dis- 
tinctly and see readily and without eye strain. This is one of 
the important functions of the medical inspection and much 
good is accomplished by the nurse and school physician as well 
as by the family physician in discovering and correcting these 
physical handicaps. 

A child's emotional stability plays a very important part in 
his success in learning. One who is still handicapped by habits 
of infancy, or by shyness, embarrassment and fears, or who gives 
way to temper tantrums, or for any reason is tense or strained, 
is very likely to lose confidence in himself and develop the at- 
titude that he cannot read; his attention wanders, poor habits 
of perception develop, and the result is dislike for reading and 
for school. 

Early discovery and intelligent treatment of the factors 
which prevent a child from making normal progress in learn- 
ing to read, is the ideal which we are striving to attain. The suc- 
cess we achieve in this determines the success the pupil will 
have, and any failure of teachers or parents in this respect reduces 
the pupil's chance of success. 



Medical Inspection Report 
The School District's decision to employ a school nurse and 
the subsequent employment of Mrs. Edna J. Gilbert, R. N., 



76 



marks a decided advance in the medical inspection and health 
supervision. 

Beginning September 29, Mrs. Gilbert assisted Dr. Karr 
making the regular annual health examination of all the pupils 
and teachers in both the Public School and the Sacred Heart 
School. Their report shows the following list of defects:

In addition to the medical inspection the nurse has weighed 
and measured 42 pupils in the Public School and 312 in the 
Sacred Heart School. She has reported 9 home visits, 2 business 
calls, 2 interviews with officials, 4 conferences, and has spent 16 
hours working with the school physician and 63 hours total ser- 
vice. She reports 1 1 pupils excluded from the Public School until 
treatment for impetigo was completed. Also, she excluded from 
the Sacred Heart School 6 with scabies, and 5 with pediculosis 
until these conditions were corrected. 

We hope that arrangements may be made in clinics for the 
correction of many of the defects, including teeth, tonsils and 
adenoids. 



77 



Budget 

The School Board's estimate of money needed for the sup- 
port of schools next year is practically the same as the estimate 
of a year ago and is only approximately $200 more than the 
amount of the |3.50 tax required by law to be raised and ex- 
pended for this purpose. The amount of their estimate for 
other statutory requirements is almost exactly the same as last 
year and the total amount required to meet the School Board's 
Budget is $4.50 less than last year. However we were able to re- 
duce the assessment required last year by applying $500 of the 
estimated cash balance together with the estimated amount of 
dog tax and tuition receipts; while this year the cash balance will 
not be large enough to be so applied and we have at the present 
time only one tuition pupil; consequently the assessment re- 
quired for next year is $8,900. 

The reason for the small cash balance anticipated at the 
end of the current school year is the fact that we continued to 
employ three regular teachers this year, instead of only two as 
was contemplated when last year's budget was prepared. The 
enrollment has decreased and is likely to decrease still further 
next year due to the fact that there are nine pupils to graduate 
from the eighth grade and we know of only three or four to 
enter first grade in the fall. With three teachers, that would 
mean only twelve or thirteen pupils in each room and a total 
enrollment of probably no more than forty pupils. 

With such a number in prospect it does not seem justifiable 
to continue employing three teachers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Vernon S. Ames, 

Superintendent of Schools.
